I was going to feed the monkeys with fruits and had the brilliant idea to shoot it with my GoPro. Suddenly, many monkeys start to approach and in a matter of second my camera was robbed by the little monkey. I was shocked when he managed to open the GoPro case and even removed the battery.

Eventually, an old lady familiar with the ways of monkey racketeering resolved the situation by bribing the thief with some fruit, which convinced him to stop filming.

Has anybody tried this on Michael Bay?
